Today, May 1st, is the 63rd annual National Day of Prayer. Why is it vital that we observe this special day and agree with others in prayer? There are multiple reasons, but today I’d like to consider five:
1. We Are One Nation Under God
The National Day of Prayer website features “Still…Under God,” an article by John Bornschein, the Task Force Vice Chairman. Regarding the history...

As gun law debates rage in the media and the government bodies of this nation, a deeper, more critical issue is being overlooked—the only issue that can change the tide of violence in our nation.
I recently saw the video below of Darrell Scott’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee. Mr. Scott’s daughter, Rachel Scott, was killed in the Columbine High School shooting. His son, Craig, is a...

In yesterday’s post, we prayed for the little ones, repenting for the shedding of the innocent blood of over 50 million babies — a sin which has polluted our land and invited God’s judgment. Israel did not escape God’s judgment for killing innocent children…and neither will we. For God is the same yesterday, today and forever.

On August 6, the nation will come together at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas for a solemn gathering of prayer and fasting for our country.
America is in crisis seemingly on every front…and frankly, it’s easy to feel discouraged. But Scripture teaches us that there is hope – hope in prayer!
I urge you to join me this Saturday and set aside time to unite with the tens of thousands of...

Paul, in his first letter to Timothy, taught him the proper administration of the local church. Paul also gave instructions for the church’s ministry of prayer.
1 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and...

is no hope but in prayer. Herein lies the Church’s
power against the world.”

The sign says, “PRAYER, America’s Only HOPE, 2 Chron. 7:14”

Today is the 59th annual National Day of Prayer (NDP), an event established by an act of Congress that encourages Americans to pray for our nation, its people and its leaders. As you may know, this is our focus each Thursday in the Concert of Prayer. I am passionate about our nation, its history and founding. The fact that we have departed from the principles on which we were founded – the principles by...

A Florida school district is being accused in a lawsuit of making a deal with the ACLU to criminalize “protected religious expression,” banning students from saying “God bless” and forcing teachers to “hide in closets to pray.”
Two students originally complained that staff or faculty members were expressing their religious views off-campus at events such as off-campus...
